Our Lady of Lebanon, Jounieh

Looking out over the bay of Jounieh toward Beirut, Our Lady of Lebanon attracts Christian and Muslim pilgrims from around the world. Standing atop a majestic spiral staircase/stone base, the 8 m (26.2 ft) bronze statue of the Virgin Mary encloses a monumental 100 seat-shrine located underneath. Ride the cable car to the top of the hill, located 650 m (2132.5 ft) above sea level, then climb the sloping 19th-century stairway to the base of the statue, where a panoramic view of the city rewards your efforts.

    Simply breathtaking what a view very spiritual you can see all of the east of Lebanon . Very busy and a lot of stairs to climb but well worth it  more »

    A very nice visit with spectacular views of Beirut. Be sure to exercise and go up the stairs around the building.  more »

    If you can make your way all the way to the top, the view alone is BREATHTAKING. I will definitely come to visit Our Lady of Lebanon every time I visit home. I also was able to purchase a mini ceramic Our Lady statue from the souvenir store. Amazing experience. Love it and will be back again.

    For me it's the best place on earth. Very quite place where one can pray in peace. Breathtaking view from the top of our Lady. Night visit is highly recommended

    Pretty nice area, and great environment. However, didn't feel very spiritual and too commercial. However, still a great area to spend time with family and friends.
